Dear Mansa folk,

While this is not strictly a Mansa topic, I suspect some of you might be
able to help me.  I am trying to put together an advanced undergraduate
course to get students to think about the question of eparations to
Africans for the damage caused by the slave trade.  I want to use Randall
Robinson's "The Debt" as the "pro" text and Raymond Winbush's "Should
America Pay" to fer a variety of perspectives.  I also plan to use John
Rapley's "Understanding Development" to give them an overview of Africa
and global economics.

Here's my question: can anyone suggest a good "anti" reparations text
book that is available in paperback.  So far, I'm looking at David
Horowitz' "Uncivil Wars" but I'd like to use something more scholarly.

Thanks in advance.
